Tom Naughton began his professional life as a writer and editor for Family Safety & Health magazine. In the many years since, he's worked as a freelance writer, a touring standup comedian and a software programmer. Fat Head, his humorous documentary about the lousy health advice handed down from official sources, has been seen on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime, as well as on television networks in several countries. His speeches and other health-related videos have been viewed by millions of people online. Tom now lives on a small hobby farm with one wife, two daughters, two dogs, one cat, and dozens of chickens. Chareva Naughton began her art career illustrating forestry training manuals while a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mali, West Africa. She later studied computer animation and web design in Santa Monica, California. Her graphics are included in many of Tom's projects, including his speeches, blog and documentary films. When not hunched over a computer or drawing pad, Chareva enjoys spending time with her family, learning tai chi, gardening and tending to the animals.
"A great resource for any adolescent (or 40-year-old, for that matter) struggling with weight or body image issues. A funny and entertaining treatment of a serious topic. The Naughtons deliver the latest in health science in a unique way that entertains as well as informs, with a captivating story punctuated with brilliant cartoon illustrations. Should be mandatory reading in every 6th grade class."

"We could debate what is the single most important element of raising kids, but I doubt anyone would argue that feeding our kids well is (or should be) near the top of the list. But what does "feed our kids well" really mean? In Fat Head Kids, Tom Naughton explores this touchy subject, and what he has to share will likely surprise but also inspire you."
